Liv Strange "People Are Strange"

Liv Strange has released her debut single, "People Are Strange", which is a cover of the classic song by The Doors. The cover was produced by Svend “The Dane” Lerche and is accompanied by a video that created by Liv & Emma Reyes.

When asked why she chose this song to cover, Liv had this to day; "I decided to cover 'People Are Strange' because I've always been enamored by the oddities of the 'average' individual; the hidden secrets and twisted mind of your next door neighbor. We are all strange in our own way. In knowing that, it can either keep us connected to our personal freedom or burdened by its ghastly shadow,"

   

Hobbyist "Neon"

Hobbyist has released a heartbreaking video for the latest single, "Neon", from their latest album, Side Fx, which was released back in May. The video finds one half of the duo, Holly Prindle, masked up and slowly exploring the shut down spaces around the city.

The video is an effort to bring awareness to the Save Our Stages movement and support small music venues affected by Covid-19.

   

BOYO debuts charged indie rock single "Ghost Noise"

BOYO offers up a charged version of indie-rock music in his new track “Ghost Noise,” which starts with crisp electric guitar strums and finishes with a rich distortion worthy of the song’s name. Upbeat, with a drum pattern quite snappy, “Ghost Noise” displays BOYO’s ability to keep things fun but hardly uniform as the vocals on the track shift from passive verses suited for soft rock to vocalizing that is perky for pop. With piano key trickles to accent the changing rhythms, “Ghost Noise” is a pleasant song for winter just getting started; stream the new track below for some sonic heat. - René Cobar

Young Man in a Hurry "A Blue and Red Taxi and Bernie"

Young Man in a Hurry has released a video for the fifth single, "A Blue and Red Taxi and Bernie", from their debut album, Jarvis.

Lead singer and songwriter Matt Baron co-wrote this song with Grandmother, Dee, near the end of her life about his Grandfather.

Baron has this to say about the song and video; "The lyrics are about what it might be like to reconvene with a long-lost love on the other side, either physical or astral. The video subtly explores the idea of how we’re always trying to go somewhere new, and when we get there, we’re just there".
